As we enter the new year, it’s a good time to reflect on personal growth and what you may need to let go of to continue reaching your personal growth goals. Personal planning gets easier with practice, but as you start building your plan and finding the things to cut.
Turn your life around by letting go of these things in 2023.
1 The tendency to always say yes.
Oftentimes we may be really good at saying yes and not so great at saying no – but it’s critical to set boundaries and prioritize our own needs.
2 The belief that entrepreneurship has to be done alone.
In 2023, one of the most important things you can do is surround yourself with like-minded people – whether it’s a support group, a mentor, or a community of entrepreneurs. While focusing on your personal planning, take some time to reach out and connect with people you could collaborate with.
3 Fear – or, as it’s often referred to, False Evidence Appearing Real.
Letting go of fear can be challenging, but it’s essential if we want to move forward and take risks. Stepping outside your comfort zone and facing your fears is necessary for personal growth.
4 The martyr mentality.
It’s essential to do the right thing and put others before ourselves at times, but becoming too obsessed with this idea can lead to a lack of boundaries and an unhealthy focus on others. Turn your life around in 2023 by maintaining a balance between helping others and helping yourself.
5. The things, people, places, and spaces that do not serve us.
It can be tough to let go of these things, but it’s essential if we want to create space for better things to come into our lives.
6 The things we are pretending not to know.
Sometimes we avoid facing hard truths or doing the work to grow because it’s easier to “not know” than to confront them. But personal growth depends on facing these truths.
7 The fear of confrontation.
It’s vital to examine the hard things in our lives that will make a big difference, even if it means facing difficult conversations or challenges.
8 The need to know “why.”
Letting go of the need to know the reasons behind everything can be liberating and allow us to focus on the present and the future.
The takeaway: letting go to build your personal growth goals for 2023.
By letting go of these things, we can make space for new people, new energy, and new opportunities to come into our lives in 2023. It may be challenging, but it’s worth it if you want to turn your life around. What is on your list of things to let go of?
